“Each Mass contains the slaying of the Victim, not repeated here in the West after centuries, made once only long ago in Palestine, yet part of the sacrifice offered throughout the world each morning. All Masses are one sacrifice, including the death of the cross, continuing through all time the act of offering then begun … Every time we hear Mass we look across that gulf of time, we are again before the cross, with his mother and St. John; we offer still that victim then slain, present here under the forms of bread and wine.”
— Fr. Adrian Fortescue (d. 1923)

“Pleni sunt coeli et terra gloria tua.”
published 24 October 2016 by Jeff Ostrowski

E LOVE LIVING in Los Angeles, but there’s one thing I miss tremendously about the Midwest. I’m speaking of the Autumn leaves, which in northern regions of the United States turn unbelievable colors. Seeing the beautiful colors, I would always recall the SANCTUS: Pleni sunt caeli et terra gloria tua.
